able to defend our country not embarrass it. engage our allies not alienate them. defeat our adversaries, not embolden them. when we hear a candidate call for rounding up 12 million immigrants. banning all muslims from entering the united states, when he embraces torture, that doesn't make him strong, it makes him wrong. billionaires running our economy?
to the right place. we started this campaign at 3% in the national polls, we have come a long way in ten months. and the reason that we have done as well as we have, the reason that we have defied all expectations, is that we are doing something very radical in american politics, we are telling the truth. >> on the republican side, trump won florida forcing marco rubio out of the race. trump also won north carolina and illinois. trump and cruz essentially tied in missouri and will split those
but in ohio, john kasich kept his hopes alive with a big win in his home state. >> number one, i want to congratulate marco rubio on having run a really tough campaign. he is tough. he is smart. and he has a great future. he has the got a great future. but i have to say, and -- nobody has ever, ever, in the history of politics received the kind of negative advertising that i have. record, record, record. by the way, mostly false. i wouldn't say 100%. about 90%. mostly false, vicious, horrible, they say it was $1 million the first week, last week, $25 million. added up to over $40 million. and you explain it to me because i can't. my numbers went up. i don't understand it. nobody understands it. my numbers went up.
this is a really interesting process. it is an amazing process. it is very tough. but it is -- by the end if you get to the end, you can handle a lot of things including pressure. that i can tell you. because the there is nothing like. lies, deceit, viciousness, disgusting reporters, horrible people. some are nice. some are nice. some really disgusting people back there. and, i just want to say we are going to go forward and we are going to win. but more importantly we are going to win for the country. we are going to win, win, win. we are not stopping. we are going to have great victories for our country. thank you very much, everybody. thank you. thank you. >> i haven't had a chance to speak to him. i've want to congratulate donald trump on his victory. big victory in florida. no, no, no, no. no, no, no. no, guys. we live in a republic. our voters make these decisions. we respect that very much.
i want to begin by thanking all of you here today. the politics of resentment against other people will not just leave us a fractured party, they're going to leave us a fractured nation. they're going to leave us as a nation where people literally hate each other. because they have different political opinions. we find ourselves at this point its not surprising. for the warning signs have been here close to a decade. in 2010, a tea party wave carried me and others into happening. that tea party wave gave house. nothing changed. the same voters gave republicans a majority in the senate. still nothing changed. and i blame some of that on the conservative movement. a movement that is supposed to be about our principles and our ideas. but i blame most on our political establishment. but after tonight it is clear that while we are on the right side, this year, we will not be
i take great comfort in the in a schent word which teaches us -- that in their hearts, humans plan their course. but the lord establishes their steps. while it is not god's plan that i be president in 2016, or maybe ever, and while today my campaign is suspended. the fact that i have even come this far is evidence of how special america truly is. and all the reason more why we must do all that we can to ensure that this nation remains a special place. >> to those who supported marco. who worked so hard, we welcome you with open arms. only two campaigns have a plausible path to the nomination. ours and donald trump's. nobody else has any mathematical
only one campaign has beaten donald trump over and over and over again. not once, not twice, not three times, but nine times all across the country from alaska to maine. tonight, tonight we arrived in cleveland. and we went to a restaurant. we thought we could kind of sneak in and grab a quick meal. and when we walked through the restaurant people started to cheer. my reaction i said please don't do that because you are going to
